PERFORMING AMAZING FEATS OF STORYTELLING SINCE 2001
 
 

Cyrano

%none

Based on the classic tale of love

 

Adaptation, Direction and Fight Choreography by Matt Hawkins
Music by Kevin O’Donnell
Lyrics by Shawn Pfautsch and Matt Hawkins

 

Cyrano is the quintessential Renaissance Man. A natural leader, courageous soldier, brilliant swordsman, skilled musician and a master of language, our hero fails only in love.
Based on Edmond Rostand’s classic tale of love, Cyrano de Bergerac, Hawkins' distilled retelling pulls the audience into a wild love triangle as Cyrano pursues the fair Roxanne through new original music, poetry and spectacular sword fighting.
